I walked 444 miles to make a memory.

from Andra:

"In March 2014, I became one of the only living persons to walk the 444-mile Natchez Trace. 15 miles a day. 6 days a week. For 34 days. The Rotarian Magazine profiled me in its January 2017 issue as an ordinary Rotarian doing extraordinary things. I did the walk to launch my debut novel To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis, but I ended up having a life-changing adventure with my 80-year-old father. It inspired my NY Times best selling memoir Not Without My Father: One Woman's 444-Mile Walk of the Natchez Trace. Given Rotary's interest in both literacy and family, my motivational talk has become popular with Rotary clubs."
